Roy Keane ITV

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane feels Wayne Rooney has nothing to prove and claims that it was never in doubt that Rooney would play against Scotland tonight.

A spate of ‘injuries’ kept Rooney out of United’s pre season games but the striker was still selected by Roy Hodgson for tonight’s grudge match at Wembley.

With the season starting on Saturday, Keane believes that Rooney needs minutes and the tie is the perfect occasion for Rooney to sharpen up ahead of the new campaign.

Speaking to ITV ahead of their coverage of the game, Keane said of his former team mate:

“I think it was always clear he was going to start. People have to remember it’s pre-season and he needs some minutes under his belt – and this is a perfect game for it as it’s going to have an edge to it.

With all the speculation, he needs to play some games. He’s picked up some injuries pre-season but I don’t think he’s got anything to prove tonight. The biggest danger for him is if he tries to overdo it, so hopefully he’ll get a decent 45 minutes under his belt.”
